​Commercial Bar Exam Preparation Courses

Many students are unsure how best to prepare for the bar examination. Nearly all students planning to take the bar exam enroll in one or more bar preparation courses. Bar preparation courses assist graduates in reviewing substantive law, drafting essays and performance tests and approaching multiple choice questions. Many companies both in and out of California offer a variety of courses, workshops and online tutorials. Students should thoroughly research available commercial bar preparation course options before selecting a bar preparation course.
